Because the Appraisal Institute’s Washington Office is the only government affairs office in our nation’s capital representing real estate appraisers, Appraisal Institute members are uniquely positioned to have your voices heard by lawmakers and regulators.
The Washington Office’s mission is three-fold:
Present your needs regarding critical issues impacting the appraisal profession through continuing interaction with Congress and federal agencies.
Keep you informed and as up-to-date as possible on those key issues and how they affect you.
Support Congressional candidates who are pro-appraiser and pro-real estate through our political action committee, APPAC (the Appraisal Institute Political Action Committee).
